This book, based on the 1989 Beg-Rohu summer school, contains six sets of pedagogical lectures by internationally respected researchers on the statistical physics of crystal growth. Providing a complete course in which the phemena of shape and growth are viewed from a vel vantage point, the lectures cover t only very recent developments, but also reflect on old problems that have t always received the attention they deserve. Statistical physicists, condensed matter physicists, metallurgists, and applied mathematicians will find this a stimulating and valuable introduction to this important area of research.
